The Geologic History of the Blackstone River Valley
Every rock has a story and together they create a song of ice and fire. Join VIP Mark Dennen as he takes the virtual stage to lead you on a journey throughout the Blackstone River Valley to learn about the role that earthquakes, volcanoes, and glaciers played in creating the valley’s stunning rocky terrain.
Mark will introduce you to the magnetic Cumberlandite, the “Blackstone Group,” Greenstone, plant fossils, and more. Learn about rifting, metamorphism, moraines, and glacial erratics. Take this newfound knowledge with you on your next hike in the woods, your bike ride down the Blackstone River Bikeway, or your paddle down the Blackstone River and share it with others!
This is event is a Blackstone River Valley Volunteers-In-Parks Skills Workshop. Volunteers who attend can report their hours under training. This event is open to the public.
